Update | Jetstar has opted to delay the announcement of new international Boeing 787 routes until next week – see our story for details.
Previous | Jetstar is set to upgrade its its international service with new business class and economy meals and the debut of inflight duty-free shopping.
Qantas' low-cost sibling is also promising to reveal "new route launches planned for 2014" at a media briefing to be held in Melbourne today, Friday December 6th.
Also on the agenda is "a new inflight duty-free shopping service" which should provide an additional revenue stream for the airline.
Jetstar represents one of the happier columns on the Qantas Groups' balance sheet, compared to the loss-making Qantas International arm and the challenged Qantas Domestic operation.
The low-cost airline took delivery of Australia's first Boeing 787 in October this year, with 13 more Dreamliners to follow until Jetstar has an all-787 international fleet by 2015 covering all destinations currently served by its Airbus A330s.

With Jetstar expecting to have three Boeing 787s flying by early next year, this Friday could also see the announcement of new Dreamliner routes.
Earlier this year Jetstar CEO Jayne Hrdlicka said "we expect to add more destinations, including Phuket, Japan, Hawaii and Singapore, to the 787's flying schedule as we receive more aircraft."
Australian Business Traveller will be attending Jetstar's international launch event – watch for live updates on our @AusBT Twitter channel from 12 noon.
